    Balsa crank problems

    Thanks, Bob Some transparent material like gel pad might make it more beautiful and I also will try.

    Balsa crank problems

    How about putting a shock absorber in the lip slot like this? I used small two plates of gum. A little bit ugly but seems to be durable.

    Balsa crank problems

    BobP is right and you should set the lip deeper to where almost near the eyes. Deeper lip slot will make the lip stronger with super glue like Devcon 2 ton. You can do this if you make a V letter cut on the upper part of the lip to avoid the front eye heaton. I also use the lightest (softest) balsawood, Devcon 2ton, and twisted wire eyes and my lure never broken when I fished the big Barramundi.

    History of tackleunderground

    Long time no see guys. I'm alive and sorry to be anxious about me, Pete Recently I rather like to go trekking than fishing I am one of the members from TackleMaking .com. Many years ago, Erik, the owner of the site asked me to get a tutorial of lure making from my personal site, and this is how I participate in TM. I've had a pleasant time and learned a lot of things from other members. Hiro

    Copy of Triple Impact

    Nice one BobP, the triple impact is known as a big fish killer in Japan and your lure will catch the big ones. Did you know the lure had been a handmade lure by Mr.Nishine before Shimano started to make? He works in Canada and kwown as a builder of Beatour crankbait and Tru-life swimbait. http://nishinelureworks.com/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1
